Summary

Summary

In 1951 Chrysler produced its first ever V8 engine. Technically advanced and featuring hemispherical combustion chambers, the new Hemi Head engine produced much more power in relation to its capacity than any of its competitors could manage. In 1955 the new Chrysler C-300 was launched, the model combined power (300 horse power) and style (by Vrigil Exner) in a large but good-handling car. In its first year the new car would win both major American stock car racing series: NASCAR and AAA. So began the legend and for each of the next ten years a new 300 model, identified by a different letter of the alphabet would appear. This text details the full history of Chrysler 300, from C to L.
